GoldenEye 007 was released on November 2, 2010; already one month ago! Last week, we looked at the debut game-play hours for James Bond's latest Wii game, and the initial game-play data looked encouraging. If you missed GoldenEye 007's Wii play-time data debut, you can read the report, HERE!
Like last week, I'm including another GoldenEye 007 online multi-player match video, with this week's data report in the "Thoughts" section.

I think it's really interesting that Amazon.com is already discounting GoldenEye 007 pretty significantly for a newly released title. The Golden Classic Controller Pro version is currently discounted by 29%, from its MSRP; while software version only of the game is discounted 28% from its MSRP.
Amazon.com is known for having great deals, but I just find it a little odd for both versions of GoldenEye 007 to be discounted this much, so soon. The game-play data reported for the game has been solid for a third party Wii game, and I think sales for the game will be pretty decent through the Christmas holiday; which is why I think the price cut is a little odd right now.
If you are interested in purchasing GoldenEye 007 for yourself, or as Christmas gift for somebody you know, now is probably a good time to watch the prices on Amazon, and get it is discounted.
As for my play-time with GoldenEye 007, my "Game-Play Records" show I have played 48 Hours 20 Minutes. All of that probably isn't straight game-play though, as sometimes I'll leave the game running on the menu screen, and I have spent some time just recording footage of different things in the game.
My reported online multi-player "Time Played" is currently 17 Hours 54 Minutes, and that is a close reflection to my actual time playing the online multi-player. Speaking of the online multi-player, below is a video from GoldenEye 007's multi-player map, "Industrial". In the video, I was playing with TheButcher, from WhoBurnedMyToast.Blogspot.com, and we were communicating via GMail voice-chat, and it worked pretty well:
I am still playing and enjoying GoldenEye's online multi-player, and I have started working my way back through the single-player campaign on the "Agent" difficulty setting. I like that the added objectives on "Agent" have already let me see a few different areas of the levels, that I didn't notice or go through my first time playing it.
